About Our Meetings During the 2021-2022 Season
In looking through the responses from our membership about future meetings and art shows, it was clear that most members want to go back to meeting in person. We were all looking forward in May to a return to our live meetings. But the recent rise of the Delta variant of COVID has seen another huge spike in infections. In light of recent events, we have decided that it is wiser to continue our Zoom meetings, at least until the new year arrives. As much as we want to be able to be with all of you in person again, we care more about your health and the health of your families. That also means that our Fall 2021 Art Show will be virtual again. We continue to hope to return to our normal meetings soon!
Our September Zoom Meeting Will Be Tuesday, September 21, 2021
Meet and Greet will start at 6:30 p.m., with the meeting and artist demo starting at 7:00. Until we have more paid memberships for the new season, everyone who was a member last year will be invited again this month. Remember to pay your dues for the 2021-2022 season! Same low price!
September Demo Artist: Jessie Rasche “On the Farm” Oil Painting
We are continuing to take advantage of our Zoom meetings by inviting an artist to speak to us from South Dakota!
Jessie is a professional artist, painting and teaching (online) from her studio in South Dakota. Her work focuses on landscapes full of animals, and people working and playing. The main theme of her work is personal connection between people, between animals, and with the land. Through a painterly use of oils, Jessie expresses a love of the materials as well as the subject matter.
Her work has shown in fine art galleries and museums in the West, Midwest, South, and East United States. She has paintings in public collections, and has wonderful collectors in over 30 states, Canada, the Isle of Man, and the UK.Jessie teaches online drawing and painting classes for beginning to professional level artists, and is an exhibiting member of Oil Painters of America and the American Impressionist Society.
